Pearce Nash Lewin – Metropolitan Open Champion!

Nestled amidst the breathtaking vistas of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, and just a block away from the refreshing scent of the Atlantic Ocean, the Met Golf Club stands as one of the most iconic locations for a golf club. On a cold winter day, with temperatures dipping below 20 degrees, the conditions were ideal, and the course was in immaculate shape. The stage was perfectly set for an emphatic showdown, with top amateurs vying for the coveted trophy.

After the first round, ten players were under par, setting a competitive tone for the tournament. Pearce Nash Lewin led the pack with an impressive opening round of 64, featuring a clean scorecard and birdies on holes 4, 9, 12, 14, 16, and 18. Close on his tail were Zach Miller and Joshua Wiese, both posting strong rounds of 66.

Round 2 was a thrilling spectacle of back-and-forth action, with the leaderboard constantly shifting. As the tournament reached its climax, three players were tied at -8 with just six holes to play. However, Pearce’s decisive birdie on hole 32 (hole 14) secured his victory by a single shot.

Notable performances included Andrew Georgiou, Dan Copeman, and Geno Belfiore, all finishing in the top 10 with a total score of 134.

In the Women’s Section, Bobbi Brown dominated the field, being the only woman to finish under par for the tournament. Her rounds of 69 and 70, totaling 139, earned her a commanding 12-shot victory. The standard of golf displayed throughout the tournament was nothing short of exceptional, highlighting the sheer talent and skill present at the Met Open.
